Children’s Bureau Benefits from Justice Service Day

by Joy Coordinator

We were so pleased to receive a very creative special delivery today from Oaklandon Unitarian Universalist Church.

Congregants focused specifically on women’s health as a justice issue and spent a “Service Project Sundays” creating three dozen hygiene kits for teen girls staying in our shelter.

Each bag contained an encouraging, handwritten note along with soap, shampoo/conditioner, a washcloth, deodorant, toothbrush/toothpaste, feminine products, and more.

Messages included:

  • “I am who I want to be starting right now!”
  • “Sexuality doesn’t define you.”
  • “You have worth.”
  • “You are fabulous the way you are!”
